The Merchandise Mart, built in 1931, which at 4 million square feet is the biggest commercial office building in the world. The only larger office building is the Pentagon in Washington D.C., which is, of course, a government building. The Merchandise Mart was built by the Marshall Field wholesale company. When Marshall Field hit hard times in 1945, Joe Kennedy bought this building for ten dollars.

All images on this website have been shot using either a Canon S40 compact digital camera, or a Canon 20D DLSR. I'm something of a Canon fan. :) Most images have been post processed with Adobe Photoshop and the CurveMeister plugin. I thoroughly recommend CurveMeister, BTW. It's a great piece of software.
